It has been such a long time since I've had Beef Stroganoff, but for some reason it makes me think of childhood. Our lunch ladies at Sutton used to throw down on meals for us and I remember this being one of them.

Probably because it is hearty and fills bellies without emptying your pocketbook on expensive ingredients. It's also a good way to get some veggies into your family's diet. This recipe from the UK Cooperative Extension Office
